Re: Reporting the errors in card texts

Yes most errors were copied directly from original card texts, like if you look at Fury of the Iron Crown, I even mispelled dispair, on purpose in the quote, for the 1st version.

But I wanted to fix some of the obvious playable things like Siege and Assassin/Slayer etc, but I did miss Shadow-cloak :wink:

I will be going in and fixing these errors ON cards and IN texts.

I just want to seperate ( Print Errors+Typos ) vs ( Erratum+CoE ).

So feel free to quote errors, OR even direct me to a CONCRETE LIST of ALL of THEM.

I don't know where the actual "Annals" are for the CURRENT "should be" TEXTs issues.

Or even if I should have a Original (fixed Typos) | ICE (erratum) | CoE (erratum) | DCE? Options on Cardnum, seeing as how CDavis7M would probably prefer CoE erratums to be ignored LOL

But I think I am just going to merge ICE+CoE, seeing as how, Cardnum is "affiliated" with CoE.

Thanks again!!

I'll try to make a list of everything I see. Please be patient as it may take a lot of time.

I'll report everything, but I'll let the CoE decide if it's worth to fix directly on the cards or not.

Personally I would prefer the scans of original cards, not players-crafted images.

But this is under control and responsibility of developer... :|
Well I am not going to post NEW scans after all this work, but I am going to go back to having:

FULL EXACT PRINT "Versions" meaning the way they were printed.
FULL EXACT PRINT "Erratum" meaning the way they should have been "in a perfect world"
then of course DC versions

But this way WE will all have to physically turn on the Erratums, i.e. to see Assasin/Slayer 2 MP :wink:

Laters...

OK so, Unlimited is up, in Blue Borders

things like Great Ship etc will be different

but there will Not be Erratum for Unlimited
and there WILL BE Erratum for Unlimited

DC Erratums for Blue are not up tho. They will i a bit...

Again thanks for any help!

Once again, METW+METW-UL are UP, +Erratums for BOTH!

Enjoy!

nb Erratum(s) that are not extremely needed are not completely applied
such as an erratum that maybe like "a attack" that needs to be "an attack"
most of those have not been done. On going project of course stay sharp!

I'm not sure if this is right topic, but I was checking first time these fan made sets and saw some weird Finnish names used for characters. Example from Northern waste, there is characters called Taivasta and Vanha, which does not make sense as persons name. Not completely wrong or anything just weird sounding. I know it's not big deal, just pointing it out.

Cardnum is just the messenger. The card design for these sets is over in the Dream Cards subforum. They are currently working on Northern Waste, and I bet they would be very interested to get language insights, although many of the names were pre-existing from Tolkien or ICE.

Orders from the Great Demon misses the word LEADER on the card image text. "This company may contain an additional [leader] who ..."

The Dragons Promo - Ireful Flames. The card text in Cardnum is correct, but the card text on the image does not match.

Vastor - is there another option for that? I have "Hide Dreamcards" selected and still get the image with the different text.

The options for which version of a card image you see is in Settings (for your whole account.)

Thanks Theo - confirmed.

I may be mistaken - but it does certainly appear that the DC errata is flipped with the normal card.

Isn't the official text:
Affects the following sites: The Lonely Mountain, Irerock, Zarak Dûm, and Gold Hill. For any item played at one of these sites, its player must remove an item from his hand that would itself be playable at the site.
Cannot be revealed as an on-guard card. Discard Ireful Flames when any play deck is exhausted.
and the DC Errata:
Playable on a character that is facing a fire strike from Dragon's Breath. +2 to the fire strike's prowess. If the target character is wounded but not eliminated, one item he bears is removed from the game (his choice); if he is eliminated, two items are removed.
